With all the recent developments surrounding the proposed Buffy the Vampire Slayer remake swirling about (Did Whedon pass? Was Whedon screwed?), it was only a matter of time before casting rumors began. Speaking of which …
According to our friends over at MovieWeb “Glee” star Heather Morris (pictured right) is being heavily considered for the lead role of everyone’s favorite slayer, a role made famous by both Kristy Swanson and Sarah Michelle Gellar.
Morris has proved on “Glee” that she has the right comedic timing for the character, and her background as a dancer and gymnast could totally sell her for the physical aspects of the character. Again, at this point nothing is official, and we’re still a bit of a ways off before official casting comes to light. Still … not a bad choice.
In this new reboot, Buffy will no longer be in high school but instead facing the same hardships that a lot of young college graduates have today in struggling to find a paying job and a healthy relationship.
The Hollywood Reporter has debunked the rumor. Both Warner Brothers and even screenwriter Whit Anderson denied the rumor and stated that they haven’t even begun thinking about casting.
